Huawei Kirin 820 5G Specs: A New Midrange Chipset

HiSilicon Kirin 820 is a midrange chipset with 5G support. It is going to be a successor to the Kirin 810. Huawei and Honor will launch midrange 5G smartphones with this new 5G chipset. Now, Kirin 820 Specs leaked which shows that it is a powerful chipset. Kirin 820 outperformed the Kirin 980 which is a flagship chipset in terms of GPU. This chipset will run on Mali G77. This is also the first Non-900 series chipset to support 5G—checkout Kirin 820 phones and Kirin 820 comparison in this article.

Kirin 820 Specs

It is said that the 820 will be a 7 nm chipset which makes it more efficient and also helps the company to include more number of transistors as compared to the previous generation. Also, the chipset will have Cortex-A76 cores acting as big cores. The 820 is also the first chipset from HiSilicon to offer Mali-G77 GPU. Mali G77 is the same GPU used in Samsung’s Exynos 990 chipset, which is used in Galaxy S20. Although 820 won’t be using 11 cores for their Mid-Ranged smartphones, this GPU is way better than the one found inside Mali G57 which was used in its previous generation. According to ARM, the G77 is 30% more energy-efficient as well as 120%-140% faster per mm² in comparison to the G76. G76 is the same GPU used in the Kirin 990 chipset.
